Value of Unmarked Rusco Case
Dirk67 posted a topic in Thompson Submachine Gun Message BoardBought this at a auction of a local vet. It looks like an unmarked Russo case. It has obviously seen some hard use, if it could talk. This came in a box with some other stuff that I wanted for my M1. Any idea what its worth. It has a battle field affected repair on the flap with a steel probably foreign replacement pin. I had it looked at by a local guy that authenticated that and several other items but he would not give a price as he had only every seen one, the one he was holding. There is numbers under the flap that correspond to something, gun?,motorcycle?GI?. The bag is approximately 24” long. Just trying to get a ballpark value.
All, I have put together a photographic comparison of some of the subtle differences between the original Colt vertical grips and the WWII Savage vertical grips. This should help members distinguish between the two in photographs or help in determining a real grip from a reproduction. Savage grip on left, Colt grip on right. Savage grip on left, Colt grip on right. Grip mount channels. Savage "S" mark in grip mount channel. Savage grip slightly longer than Colt grip. Colt grip. Savage grip. Colt grip. Savage grip. Colt grip. Savage grip. Colt grip. Savage grip. Savage left, Colt right. Savage grip. Colt grip. Savage grip. Colt grip. Savage left, Colt right. Savage grip. Colt grip. Hope this helps the new collectors as well as the older ones.
Thompson SMG WWII slings
Sandman1957 posted a topic in Thompson Submachine Gun Message BoardRan across this last weekend. These are four original WWII Military slings. They are the No Buckle design, but are not Kerr Slings. These I think are WWII produced. There are four of them. Some minor rust on the buckles. These are New old stock. The interesting thing about them are they are stapled together with a piece of invoice paper, so they were never issued. Any stab at what they may be worth. Since they are all together didn't know if someone here might be interested in having them for a display item. I know the owner. He will let this go for a fair price. If no-one is interested, then he plans to put them on gunbroker.
Gents, just found this on the internet while looking for some China Marine stuff. It is a photo of a very young 1st Lt Robert H Barrow, 1944 in China. He later retired as Commandant of the Marine Corps. He was serving with a quasi OSS unit detailed in this link. What type of gun is he holding. Don't have my reference books here in Norfolk. link to article.http://www.mca-marines.org/gazette/article/marines-china Thanks in advance Sandman1957

Old WW II Mag Found, Is It Special?
Gonzo posted a topic in Thompson Submachine Gun Message BoardI am fairly new to the world of Thompson’s but have always wanted one after reading many books and knowing my Grandfather’s involvement in WWII. A few weeks ago my local FFL came across an old guy wanting to liquidate some things. I was told he had a few WWII 30 caliber bags as well as two (2) what he was told old WWII Thompson stick magazine (I have attached pictures). He kept one and had the FFL consign the other. It looked to cool to pass up and it appeared to be legit, so I thought what the heck and bought it, if nothing else if would look good and be a great conversation starter. It is tightly wrapped in some type of cloth/burlap that has been covered in what appears to be cosmoline or some other type of waxy grease, and banded with two straps. The straps/bands I liken to what we see in today's shipping world, they are not metal. It is the right length for a 30 round mag and if you run your fingers around the mag profile you can feel many of the identifying characteristics of the Thompson mag. I do not want to unwrap the mag as I am sure this will affect both collectability and any value it may have. Loosely attached to the mag is a small label, typed on a small piece of paper and tucked under the bands is the following (the last part I cannot make out as it is tucked under the strap and I am afraid I will tear the label): STK No. A032-65-35506 NOMEN. MAGAZINE QUANTITY EA 1 PROCESSED FOD DATE 15 Dec ____ If anyone can provide any information on this it would be truly appreciated. Is there any value to the vintage Thompson aficionado crowd or are these desired by collectors. Because I have been unable to locate anything associated with this item including an internet search of the stock number, I am fairly certain there are not a lot of these around? Can anyone confirm? Thanks in advance.
